The Regulars tells a tale of three ordinary, regular girls who suddenly, mysteriously, have all their fantasies come true…or do they? ** PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD AT 28 ADAMS STREET CORNER OF WATER IN DUMBO**
About The Regulars:
“The Regulars is a saucy, sexy story that’s one part cautionary tale, one part social commentary, and one part screamingly hilarious comedy. Deceptively simple, it’s one of the most original books I’ve read in years. You’ll eat this one up!” Sara Shepard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars and The Heiresses
A fierce, feisty, and “wonderfully entertaining” (Scott Westerfeld, author of Uglies) novel with a magical twist, The Regulars by Georgia Clark tells a tale of three ordinary, regular girls who suddenly, mysteriously, have all their fantasies come true…or do they?
Best friends Evie, Krista, and Willow are just trying to make it through their mid-twenties in New York. They’re regular girls, with average looks and typical quarter-life crises: making it up the corporate ladder, making sense of online dating, and making rent.
Until they come across Pretty, a magic tincture that makes them, well…gorgeous. Like, supermodel gorgeous. And it’s certainly not their fault if the sudden gift of beauty causes unexpected doors to open for them.
But there’s a dark side to Pretty, too, and as the gloss fades for these modern-day Cinderellas, there’s just one question left:
What would you sacrifice to be Pretty?
